An excellent everyday wine. Tempranillo, with petite Syrah blended in provided some density to the overall flavor profile.

I wouldn't have pegged this as Tempranillo dominant blind, but now looking at production notes it does remind me of some modern Rioja wines. Sweet black cherries, tight tannins, racy acidity and a touch of brambly dried herbs on the finish.

Had this a long time ago, had no idea the price point. It's a little expensive I think but it is really nice. My previous description still stands

Discovered this at the Bounty Hunter in Napa. Several months later...brought back memories of the original experience. A blended wine with strong overtones of Syrah and Cab franc.

Dusty hard red fruit. Nice Tempranillo. Kinda hard but good tannins. $49.99

Really smooth, slightly dry, woody scent (ripped description from my dad), doesn't linger though
